connector end of the iPhone.

that the cables under the display are not 
severed. 






• Use a small suction cup near the Home button to gently 
pull up the bottom portion of the iPhone's display 
assembly.

allow the suction cup to adhere, tape with a 
strong adhesive such as duct tape maybe 
used.
